.Docx and .Xlsx viewer for Office 2000
« on: November 25, 2012, 03:43:36 PM »
FYI - Panergy software sells a $20.00 application that lets MS Office 2000 (Word & Excel) open .docx and .xlsx files.  Unlike Office 2004, for which Microsoft offers a reader add-on, Office 2000 cannot be updated to read files made in Office 2007/8 & newer.  I bought the Panergy software, and in my experience, spanning a year of light usage, I'd say that it works 95% or more of the time.  (Very large files w/embedded macros may be the culprits in the handful of times a student's paper has failed to convert.)
I run Office 2000 w/Panergy on a PowerBook G3/266 Wallstreet.

Well what we would need it as well a possibility for .odt files as for the totally crazy new RTF. I hate them more than ever before for changing a 25 year old, well working exchange format to a new standard. They broke up all interoperability with that. Even in Open Office you have to select now "RTF for Old Computers" what a pity (again: for a exchange format).

Sadly Pangery cannot help us as they told me 2 years ago, ... perhaps if more people ask them?
In every case their "converter" is nice and wirth the $20 if you need to work with such files.

it is an OSX only app too, so not handy for us running 9.2.2 and using Office 2001.
15 Macs (13 of them ranging from an SE to a MDD), 2 iPads, 2 iPhones, 1 Hackintosh. Small house getting smaller with each Mac. . . . .  .Husband shakes his head but supports my habit.

torvan, there is a docXConverter program for Mac OS 9 too! Sadly http://www.panergy-software.com/ seems to be gone. Here is a recently working  download: http://www.tucows.com/preview/513041

I think one value of this forum is looking for almost gone mac files.

Have to tell that story of founding this file is little longer than I tell:
http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php?topic=4063.0
I had even contacted to guy who was in it's programming team and he knows people that are still inside Apple. And even Apple didn't have it anymore.
But we (macStuff actually) found it.

Should you make here something like this: Mac OS 9 Lives! (Classic Mac OS Forum) Classic Mac OS Software (Discussions on Applications) Lost & Found files
or something like that?
And you can start it with moving this:
http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,5233.0.html
to there.
I bought my first new Mac when OS X 10.1 released. And I bought that Mac because it had Mac OS 9 too. And I bought my first 68k Mac when Apple stopped PPC Macs.

Until they do so, here is the direct download:
https://web.archive.org/web/20150914154708/http://www.tucows.com/download/mac/files1/docXConverter_Installer2.0.sit

The problem, it is shareware, ... and you cannot buy it anymore. Somebody should contact the pangery people and ask them for a "freeware as-is version".

Couple of serial numbers for 2.0 in the above Wayback link crop up in an OSX Serial Box library (08-2015.sb2)

002328-004089612093-975489075623-003859
002460-555555555555-000000000000-003247

First one works fine here, not tested the second
